The Knife Life

We don't know much about the guy who wrote, "the pen is mightier than the sword," except that he probably wasn't using his sword right. 

Ask any honest farmhand, Japanese chef, or the two most dangerous ninja turtles, and they'll tell you a sharp blade is the most virtuous and versatile tool a man can wield. A trusty, fixed blade won't bend, break, or stray from its owner's side; when the going gets tough, the tough get cut. 

But unlike men and Socialist paychecks, not all knives are created equal. We've found that the knives guys trust the most are ones they make themselves. The Knife Making Project Kit gives every guy the opportunity to design, craft, and perfect his new best friend. 


Shanks For The Memories

The Knife Making Kit is fronted by a 440c stainless-steel Shawnee Skinner blade crafted in Japan, home of the samurai. This hollow ground blade features a thumb notch for comfortable handling and easy maneuverability, and is manufactured with the durability to outlast its maker. 

We've blurred the line between trendy, polished tools and dangerously sharp fashion accessories by including curly maple handle scales, classy brass bolsters, ornately-designed mosaic pins, and a top-grain, vegetable-tanned leather sheath. The knife will develop its own unique character through the process of shaping and staining. 


Handle With Care

A dependable knife should instill fear and apprehension into its foes, not its handler, so we've included all the tools needed to rid it of stray splinters and extraneous wood. 

Like the chisels of Michelangelo, a gamut of rasps and files, graded sandpapers, and a portable bench vise will give birth to a precision carved masterpiece. And for final touches, a wood finish to pull out the unique grains of the maple burl handle. 

The Knife Making Kit contains everything needed for hours of knife crafting in the garage, and a lifetime of handling out in the world.

    He loved it!

    I bought this as a birthday gift for my hubby and he loved it! He started working on it the minute he took it out of the box. Oh, the pride in his face when he showed it off a couple of days later. He even branded the leather sheath. He did recommended taping the knife while making it. His slip pf the hand almost cost him some stitches. Lol! Great gift!

    Awesome customer service

    Christmas gift for my boyfriend and he loved making it. The sheath had glue in the inside. Man crates sent him a whole new kit! Thank you so much.

    Excellent Customer Service

    I bought this kit for my husband. He had already finished the tanto kit.

    He got in a hurry and bent the bolster pins and damaged the bolsters and pins taking it apart.

    The Man Crates staff said they would send the spare parts at no charge. Rather than just sending those replacement parts. They sent a whole new set (blade, scales, bolsters, pins, glue, sheath)

    Great job team!

    Happy Man

    Got this for the love of my life for Christmas and he practically dived right in to get started. He was so happy and can't wait to finish it.
